Vidic Is Going Nowhere

Vidic Is Going Nowhere

Latest news is that Milan and Barcelona both want Nemanja Vidic. The papers speculate that they might even be successful in their attempt to prise him away from Old Trafford as his wife is yearning for sunnier climate, having never really settled in rainy Manchester.

However, I am fully confident that Vidic is going nowhere. Why? Simple.

First, we can rule out AC Milan who do not have the financial resources to buy him. Adriano Galliani vice-president admitted that economically they can't compete with England and Spain and tax regulations mean that the same gross wages amount to lower net wages in Italy than in England or Spain.

Barcelona are trickier but they have Rafael Marquez, Gabriel Milito, Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique for the two centre-back positions. The latter impressed this season, Puyol is the captain, Marquez is still regarded as one of the best ball-playing defenders in Spain - even if Milito leaves club which is possible they won't necessarily have to look for a replacement.

Third, Vidic's agent and Vidic himself said that Nemanja was very happy at United and did not want to go anywhere. Sir Alex definitely wants him to stay and won't even consider entering negotiations about him. So, it's all just press talk, nothing more. He'll start the next season in Manchester.

Good. About sums it up really. United's defence without Vidic... Evans is very good but i see him as a replacement for the Ferdinand type player rather than Vidic. Also on the occasions he's had Evans beside him, it's been Ferdinand, not the young Irishman who's seemed to lack confidence and make mistakes... I don't see Vidic going for a bit yet, and i sincerely hope he doesn't.
